put the 35s and some ear muffs on and headed off for a day trip
it was wet and cold



that white one has 36 inch tyres so thats a big hole

got 5 kms from home and the clutch started slipping pretty bad so nursed it home. will see if i can adjust it and clean it out today and ripped a side step off so better make some sliders

last trip we did was to Climies track and was a joint thing between Parks and Devonport 4wd club where we repaired a bridge two of us towed trailers through which proved a bit of a mission after the rain we have had





with a baby on the way in 8 weeks things have slowed down a bit and time for some tidying up and upgrades
i scored a high mount winch that i will give a bit of love and fit and also fitting a front locker and going to upgrade to gu bearing retainers to try and get more life out of wheel bearings apart from that it will just be getting a general tidy up ready for the special cargo
